01 Dec Congratulations on your ordination, Pastor Shawn!
Last week Pastor Shawn was ordained as pastor. Ordination is the process of being tested and proved for the role of pastoral ministry. As Paul exhorted Timothy, in the same way, we pray that the gifts the Lord has given you would be used so that many would come to know the saving and redeeming work of Jesus.
1 Timothy 4:14-16
Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you. Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress. Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers.
